Regarding repositories - the plan is to have the work in my fork merged into the c182s repository. Hopefully in time for 2018.3.

The 182S and 182T are very similar except for the cockpit, so there's little point in having two separate aircraft.

it would be interesting to know if this is FGPositioned/NavCache related or due to the sheer number of properties (I/O).
Like I mentioned previously, it would make sense to have a discussion if/how the sc::Element class is fully exposed to Nasal (via NasalElement), so that custom elements can be prototyped/implemented in scripting space. At that point, it would also be pretty straightforward to come up with a new Canvas element that directly operates on so called "Positioned" ghosts, so that the property I/O would be much lower, i.e. we would only make a handful of parameters configurable, such as the symbol/image to use, the size/style - and everything else would go directly through C++ space, without any unnecessary property/Nasal overhead
Please don't send support requests by PM, instead post your questions on the forum so that all users can contribute and benefit
